The Shanghai-based China Europe International Business School placed second in the Financial Times’ 2021 EMBA ranking for two consecutive years, which was released on Oct 18. Its Global EMBA program was rated as the top single-school program in Asia.
The FT’s rankings are widely considered to be the most comprehensive and influential of their kind in the world. They are compiled based on surveys of business schools and their graduates in terms of factors like career progress, faculty and diversity, research and corporate social responsibility.
This was also the fourth consecutive year that CEIBS appeared in the top five.
Wang Hong, the business school's president, said this latest ranking will serve as an important milestone in the school’s development over the next five years.
“CEIBS will continue to be a bridge connecting China with Europe and the world, and a platform for training top international business leaders,” she said.
The CEIBS' Global EMBA program improved in many of the FT rankings' metrics.
For example, the program ranked second in terms of average salary, moved up four places in work experience, and jumped eight spots up in research.
CEIBS Vice-President and Dean Ding Yuan said the business school publishes over 100 China-focused business cases each year.
“As China continues to shape international business trends, our role will further grow in importance,” said Ding.
